    I am very sorry to be posting this note. I only met Jerry a few times at shows, but we wrote on many occasions especially when this site was first forming. Jerry was a wonderful engine designer and craftsman. I have built several of his designs and see them on the site. His plans were clear and accurate, if you needed to know something a note was someplace in the plans. We will miss him.

    Friends of Jerry Howell,

    I got news from my mom and sister yesterday afternoon that Dad passed away Sat at a Colorado Springs hospital. Apparently he had shortness of breath the last couple of days prior, and it got pretty bad late Sat morning. He died shortly after he arrived at the hospital.

    His body will be brought back to Ohio for memorial services which will be handled by Zechar-Bailey funeral home in Greenville, Ohio ->link<- Dates and times will be posted on their web site when they become known.

    Allen Howell

    I have dealt with Jerry many times through out my modeling career. He always answered every question and went out of his way to provide me with helpful tips on making parts. There are few people left in this hobby that design, build and provide resources on the personal level that Jerry did. My sincere condolences to his family.
